One of the most over looked aspects of poker is preparation. This depends on your goals in the poker world. If you are just playing for fun then I will stress no preparation needed.

However, if you are the more serious player and looking to make a small profit, preparation is the most important factor.

What do I mean by this?.

Example - You just woke up, go straight to your PC, log in and start to play!
Do you think this is a good idea?.

Example 2- You just had an argument with the MRS, do you think you should play?.

The more than obvious answer is no.

Preparation as a few key elements.

1.Allowing one self enough time to play

2.Be free from distractions

3.Make sure you are awake properly

4.Music ready if you listen to it

5.A drink near by

6.Not expecting visitors

7.Enough cigarettes if you smoke

These are just a few of the preparation factors that can and will make you loose.
Make me loose how?, example - you run out of cigarettes in the middle of a MTT, yes all the smokers now cringing at the thought.

What I am saying is before you even think about a game, ask your self am I feeling up to it today,
have I everything I need.

Good luck hope this helps.
